Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church is a member of the Southeast Michigan Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Our first worship service was held on March 18, 1945 in the basement of Trinity Episcopal Church. Five years later we worshipped in our own building at 225 East Elm Avenue. The building has grown over the years, to include handicap access to the sanctuary, a parish hall with kitchen and stage, and a final addition of the narthex in 1993. It is now often recognized as "that pretty little church on the corner".
Within this space we are blessed with music at every service: organ, guitar, voice, piano, trumpet or a combination thereof. We even occasionally hear the sweet notes of saxophone, clarinet, and violin.
Since our beginning, we have been called to community service. The whole of the church, including the youth, participate and often lead in Salvation Army Special Friends, Light the Night, Community of Need Dinners, Souper Bowl Sunday, as well as a host of other events.
As the adults are blessed and supported through worship and adult education, so too are the youth. Sunday School and Vacation Bible School are vibrant ministries serving our students from pre-school through high school. Weekly children's sermons, as delivered through puppetry, appeal to all age groups.
God has blessed us and the Holy Spirit continues to refresh us as we move forward, working to serve and making our church an effective ministry of Christ.
